Micawber was a gardener, who played a saxophone,
who riffled 'rap' baloney, and demi-quaver semi-tone!
With his melodic melodies, to amuse the likes of me,
he’d don a pink fedora, to show his eristic ability.
Yes Micawber was a zealot, a stalwart Lazar for his age,
With a garden mish-mash, of Gentian, Gardenia and Greengage.
Over these he kept close guard, with a loaded Winchester Rifle.
As for Youngberry and Lobelia, no one would dare to trifle!
Though his stature was adonic, this ganymede at heart,
was aided by assistants, using a two wheeled, sedan cart.
He suffered painful moments, from a painful Achilles heel,
over which he’d scream and curse, for every stone he’d feel!
Walking through his garden no weed would miss his eye,
as for a garden of perfection? He would surely die!
Being frugally parsimonious, to the meanest nth degree,
he counted every Bartlett Pear, on each and every tree!
There is no one like Micawber, of whose antics here you read,
who with his saxophone, hoped to eliminate every garden weed!
You may think this is baloney, and will make a reader scream,
but it’s how I used your eponyms, to write my nightmare dream!
